It's been several weeks since I've last checked in with you guys, so I'm sorry, I didn't mean to drop off the face of the earth. Real life gets in the way sometimes. And I have been busy!
I'm back from Hawaii now. My family all went on a summer trip because they like tropical places...in all honesty, I wasn't too excited since I don't really like warm weather. Anyway. My dog died while we were away though. :( He'd been sick for a while but he'd been getting better so it was kind of unexpected. I don't know if you guys remember but back in June he got really sick with some type of immuno-deficiency disease and his platlette count plummeted and it was pretty certain that he wasn't going to make it but then he improved and got to come home from the hospital.
So I'm done at MICA. We left on Saturday morning after 4 weeks there. At the end I really didn't want to leave--home won't feel like home anymore. I realized how little of a connection with people at home I have, which is sad, but since my friends have graduated I guess I kind of expeced it. At least a lot of us at the program shared the sentiment, and some of them don't even have decent art programs to go back to back home. I never got around to describing everyone I met there for you guys did I?
MICA continues to be a lot of fun, a lot of work, not much sleep and way too hot. I went to a thrift shop of sorts yesterday called The Book Thing, where they have rooms and rooms of used books, and they're all free! I got a box full, 16 in total, I think. I felt like such a gutton, but they were all so beautiful I couldn't choose.
So it's the second day of pre-college. We still haven't started class yet, it's a lot of icebreakers and getting-to-know-you stuff. My room is decent actually, and it's got two big windows, so that's nice. Unfortunaely, there faren't as many queer-art girls (or anyone, really) here as I'd hoped, but I'll be busy working likely so I doubt I'd have the motivation to pursue someone anyhow. There are a few cute dyke-y girls though, and some of the RAs are rather attractive. It's always the older unattainable girls, isn't it. :/
I'm in NJ for right now, visitingmy grandparents before I head off to study at MICA for a month. Consequently, my oasisizing time is really sporadic,since my mum is always borrowing my laptop, but I'll be around still.
Finals are this week, starting Tuesday and I am freaking out. I have so much to study for and only one day left, really. My English teacher threw this big group speech on us at the last minute, and my group has to give it during our lunch break because she messed up the scheduling.
I know it's been a rather long time since I've written anything. I guess I just haven't had much of anything interesting going on in my life. Meh. I finally finished with AP testing last week though. :) It was bad.
I also realized today that all of my close friends are graduating in a few weeks, which sucks, and means I will probably derp/lurk around awkwardly for the first quarter of school next year until I find someone new to talk to. Ugh, not looking forward to it. I'm bollocks at meeting new people.
I'm sittting here trying to write this 10 page paper for English class on Kerouac, and my dad is washing the dishes and the're making this *shlorp* noise and I'm just
I can never focus on anything, and it's such a problem. I've been thinking of maybe asking my doctor if I have ADD or something because this can't be normal. Ugh.
I just spent half and hour typing a really long post, and then the interenet ate it when I double-checked that my hyperlink worked. Ugh. Now I have to type it all out again, and I'll probably forget stuff.
Supposed to be writing english homework, but spent 45 minutes looking at tumblr. ...the hell? Gah, I'm so unproductive, I wonder if this diagnosable. (<-------- is that a word?)
This is for an English assignment and it's only a rough draft. Sketch, in words, a person who does not know you are watching them. Any comments, critiques, suggestions etc. are greatly appreciated.
To the Girl in the Green Sweater
You're sitting in the row behind me me in the auditorium
wearing a sweater the colour of olives
no, not quite olives, like olives and lichen and some other deeper thing, like the confidence rolling off you in waves is stiched into the yarn of your sweater
Will be back Friday I think, but I don't know if I'll have oasis access while I'm gone.
I have stories for you all when I return! (read: Raccoon Boy had a party and it was epic)
I've missed writing things on Oasis. I just don't have much going on right now. Actually, I do but it's all schoolwork and not very interesting, since Evy got all weird again and said she couldn't see me anymore.
::Rant Alert::And she told me this over Facebook, I mean really?!
She lives 5 bloodly minutes across town and she complains that we never see eachother and then doesn't make any time to do that anyway. And besides, it's not like she needs to be with me 24/7 anyway, is it?
Guys, check this out!
